NEW RECRUITS AT THE PORT AUTHORITY.
The Gibraltar Port Authority (GPA) is delighted to announce that two recent recruits have now successfully qualified as Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) Operatives following an extensive period of training in the UK.
Aydan Colton and Thomas Palao have both returned from Blackpool and The Fylde College following an intense course which provided their VHF radio, radar and VTS training before their successful final assessment. Aydan and Thomas are now fully qualified to keep watch in the VTS operations room and join their colleagues in maintaining the 24-hour coverage of British Gibraltar Territorial Waters, ensuring safety of navigation for all vessels calling at Gibraltar and transiting BGTW.
Manuel Tirado, CEO and Captain of the Port welcomed the new VTS operatives to the team.
